5Recommended!
By Pedro Ferreira
I bought this specifically to connect my Macbook Pro Retina 13'' with my ultra wide Philips Display (298P4QJEB), via hdmi port it doesn't show the full resolution (2560x1080) and also squeeze the image, making impossible to work with, so for my luck the display comes with 2 Display Ports, so i've found that this cable was the better solution and it is, works pretty good to me!

5Works Great With Surface Book + Surface Dock
By Mill Burray
I have only had this cable for a few days, so I cannot attest to its longevity, although I had no problems using it to connect my Surface Book (via the new Surface Dock) to an HP EliteDisplay E241i at 1920x1200. I have not tried using it for 4k output, as I am not yet on that bandwagon due to the lack of truly universal DPI scaling, even in Windows 10. I will say though that Win 10 does do a MUCH better job than previous versions when it comes to maintaining scaling on a per-display basis in multi-monitor situations where HiDPI and normal DPI displays coexist. Quick tip for Surface Book/Pro users using the docking station to connect to a monitor using 1:1 scaling: if some elements are still scaling up on the additional screen, simply log off/on, and this should correct the problem on the additional screen. Alternatively, hook up to the docking station before waking from sleep or signing on. I personally like to set the external as my main display, tweak the power settings so that the SB does nothing when the lid is closed, and then set it aside (lid closed), resulting in a traditional desktop-like setup. Throw in my Logitec MK270 keyboard/mouse combo (which also work flawlessly in this configuration) for around $20, and I can be every bit as productive sitting in my bedroom as I am at the office.

4Cable Failed after about 6 weeks
By California Bill
Started our fine, but signal failed after about 6 weeks and maybe a couple of dozen uses.

I had this connected to an external monitor, and would connect my work laptop or home macbook when I needed a dual monitor setup. At first, I thought the connector wasn't fully engaged in the Mini DP port on the laptop/Mac, but then it just quit linking to the monitor. I tried it on another monitor...same issue. I ended up buying another cable from another brand. Won't be buying from these guys again.

Update-April 4th,2014
After posting my original review, Cable Matters contacted me via e-mail with a very nice letter of apology and offered to replace the cable at no charge, provided I a) returned the defective cable to them in the pre-paid envelope they sent, and; b) consider updating my review here on Amazon.

I think that was a fair request and I appreciate them reaching out to make things right. The replacement cable arrived within a few days, and seems to be working fine. Accordingly, Im updating my review from the original 1 star to 4 stars.

Hopefully, this cable will fare better than the original, but regardless, I am impressed by a supplier that tries to address customer issues, and I have to say Cable Matters did just that. My thanks to them for their efforts.
